great place to start your efforts toward energy savingsHere at AppleBlossom Energy, we are committed to helping you make your home as green and energy efficient as possible. Whether you want to improve your energy usage out of a desire to protect the environment, or out of a desire to save money on your power bill, our team supports you. For those in the latter camp, our team can provide a thorough guide to what improvements you can make in order to achieve that goal, but for now you can get started with some of these expert tips:

  • Change Your Air Filters- One of the biggest consumers of energy in your home is your HVAC system, so making sure that it runs as efficiently as possible is a great place to start your efforts toward energy savings. Here at AppleBlossom Energy, we find that one of the main reasons that HVAC systems start losing efficiency is that they have dirty air filters. Changing your air filters regularly will prevent your system from having to waste energy pushing air through a layer of grime.
  • Seal Cracks and Gaps- Another thing that makes your HVAC system work harder than it should have to is unsealed cracks or gaps in your floors, walls, or anywhere else. These openings allow heat energy to flow into or out of your home, making it more difficult for you system to maintain your desired temperature. Our team here at AppleBlossom Energy can help you locate any such cracks and seal them for good.

Add Insulation- If you’ve sealed all the gaps but still aren’t seeing the energy savings that you’re looking for, another solution is to add insulation. The purpose of insulation is to add another barrier to heat energy, keeping it inside in the winter and outside in the summer. Our team at AppleBlossom Energy is made of experts in insulation, and we can help you save up to 10 percent on your home cooling and heating costs just by installing some additional insulation in your home.
